An introduction to Agile software development and the Scrum framework. We take a look how Scrum teams are comprised, how they organise themselves and how to run a successful Sprint. After the talking is over we go "hands on" and run a "1 hour Sprint" aiming to deliver some working software live onto the internet using as many Scrum and Xp techniques as we can!
Chris Jones is an XP enthusiast and Certified Scrum Developer instructor who has been practising agile software development since 2003. His experience lies in designing and developing IT solutions built on Microsoft technologies. As a strong advocate of agile methodologies, Chris has applied and introduced both scrum and XP on many projects in the financial, legal, insurance, education and entertainment sectors, and has in-depth experience in building large service oriented architectures, web services and n-tier web applications. Chris has a real desire for teaching and coaching XP to software teams to help get teams “buzzing’ about their work and the products they create.
The meeting will be on Wednesday, the 17th April 2013 in the Maxima Forum in Cheltenham. Start as usual at 6.30pm and end at about 9pm. There will be refreshments and hot pizza available and a quick pub visit afterwards. Please arrive in time. Details here.
